Quotes are given on an individual basis according to the services required once we have had the opportunity to discuss your requirements and performed a preliminary home visit if necessary.

For general handyman work we charge £35 for the first hour and then £25 per hour thereafter, with a minimum charge of one hour. If you only require a simple job doing, we will schedule a time to carry out the work. You will only be charged for the time that we are there and for any materials that are needed to complete the work.

Larger jobs are quoted after a personal visit at an advantageous basic day rate rather than hourly.

Telephone Costings

In many cases, we'll be able to give you an idea of the cost of the work over the telephone. The price will include the cost of materials unless you prefer us to do the work with your own materials. Please remember, that without visiting the property the costings given on the phone are only estimated until we can see the actual job.

If you are happy with the indication of cost, we will schedule a visit to carry out the work. Once we are onsite and before we begin, we will confirm if the original estimated cost is correct. If there is an unacceptable difference between the original estimated cost and our appraisal, you are not committed to any contract. We want you to be completely happy that we have quoted a fair price for the work in hand. If you don't think that is the case, we will leave without any charge being made.

Home Visit Quotations

Jobs such as laminate floor laying or a whole bathroom retiling will obviously take longer to do and depend on the size and layout of the property. In these instances we recommend booking an appointment for a home-visit quotation. Once we have visited, we will deliver the quotation to your home or office within 24 hours.

Unforeseen Circumstances

Sometimes things spring up that no one is prepared for. If, for example, you want a bathroom wall in an old property retiling, the quote may indicate a cost for removal of the old tiles and replacement with new tiles. However, once the tiles have been removed, we may discover that the plaster also needs replacing. In this case you will be given a revised quote on site before any further work is done.

Lots of small jobs needing done?

When you have a number of fairly small jobs to do we recommend that you book us for our minimum of one hour. We will do what we can in that hour, and then assess the cost of doing the rest of the work. In this way, you'll be able to see first hand the quality of work from Bert and colleagues at 4b2 before making a commitment for any more, or more extensive jobs. We're sure you will not be disappointed.
